Dear Facebook.
I suppose I'm missing the giant "Add User" button...
but for the freaking life of me... I cannot figure out how to add someone to my FB list.
I have their email... I can GO TO THERE FACEBOOK PAGE...
but I still can't find how to "invite them to be on my page blah blah blah ..."
~ another reason why all the tweets and facebooks in the world... just don't compare to Lj.

wearing
~ black jeans...
~ black tee...
~ surgeon green shirt...
planning
~ to enjoy this day!!!
~ gotta work... but that's no reason to give up on having a great day!!!
~ go skateboarding at lunch...
~ get a fresh cup of joe from 'bucks...
~ eat a crummy but delicious cheeseburger from McDeath... (it's pretty much my fav Mikky-Dees food... the lowly Cheeseburger. :D)
~ get off work... go to farm boy and get the "fresh" groceries for the week... (tomorrow I'll get the other stuff).
~ rent some movies...
~ go home and totally make sure I have a great night... :D :D :D hmm... thinking about pizza...
wishing
~ my little sugar-tea (teasdale) enjoys the lack of gray...
~ that murphy59 enjoys the karma
~ and that pageeater gets all the sun she's earned. :D

Truly... it's getting to the point where I'm offended by people who refuse to accept
that "fuck" is a part of our national vocabulary.

Here's some info...
Growing up aware of the abject poverty that defined the countryside in her home, Columbia,
she decided that some of the money she was making from her first album would be a good start to helping.
So she set up a foundation to promote a better life...
Since then... and that was back in 1995... she has spent 45 million of her own dollars on the foundation.
They have built five schools that FEED and educate over 9000 children, and serving the needs of whole communities.
She has built a hospital and made vast contributions to rebuilding efforts after devistating natural dissasters.
She has not done all this at arms length.
She visits her home... she visits the schools.
A video of her visit to one of the schools... puts Oprah to shame...
And her fan base represents a vast organization of people who are aware of foundation and it's good work.

The foundation?
In english it's called "The Barefoot Foundation". (www.fundacionpiesdescalzos.com/index_en.php)
In spanish... "Fundacion Pies Descalzos"
The mission statement: "The Barefoot Foundation works to ensure that every columbian child can exercise their right to a quality education. Our model targets displaced and vulnerable communities by addressing their unique needs".
The artist? Of course... Shakira.
It's impressive.
Be impressed.
